THEME: YOUR SURVIVAL DEPENDS ON GOD
Text: Job 5:22, Psalm 33:19, Psalm 37:19, John 16:33
5:22 At destruction and famine thou shalt laugh: neither shalt thou be afraid of the beasts of the earth.
33:19 To deliver their soul from death, and to keep them alive in famine.
37:19 They shall not be ashamed in the evil time: and in the days of famine they shall be satisfied.
16:33 These things I have spoken unto you, that in me ye might have peace. In the world ye shall have tribulation: but be of good cheer; I have overcome the world.
â€œAnd there was a great famine in Samaria: and, behold, they besieged it, until an assâ€™s head was sold for four score pieces of silver, and the fourth part of a cab of doveâ€™s dung for five pieces of silver.â€ (2 Kings 6:25)
It is very glaring that there is famine in the land. Many people are groaning under the weight of inflation. There is now a higher level of crime than was before. There is crisis everywhere because things have turned upside down. Survival has become too difficult. The bible foresaw it as Jesus said, â€œThese things I have spoken unto you, that in me ye might have peace. In the world ye shall have tribulation: but be of good cheer; I have overcome the world.â€
In spite of the economic situation in the land, the children of God will survive. No matter the cost of fuel, rice, tomatoes and transportation, God will make a way for His people. Philippians 4:19 states, â€œBut my God shall supply all your need according to his riches in glory by Christ Jesus.â€ God is ready to supply every need irrespective of the inflation and meltdown. All you need to do is to depend on Him; abide in Him.
Sing spirit filled songs unto God and thank Him for everything He has accomplished in your life and then take the following prayer points.
1. O God, your word says that in the time of destruction and famine, your people shall laugh. I stand upon the power in your word and I decree that this period of economic meltdown in our nation shall be a period of relief for my life and family and we shall laugh, in Jesusâ€™ name.
2. O God whose word is the absolute truth, confirm Your Word in my life today. Supply all my needs according to your riches in glory be Christ Jesus. Whatever I lay my hands upon in this season; may it prosper, in Jesusâ€™ name.
3. Any spirit of lack; every devourer assigned against my harvest; be uprooted in Jesusâ€™s name. Let the spirit of poverty of my fatherâ€™s house; be separated from me by fire, in Jesusâ€™ name. Any sacrifice performed against me with old penny or cowry shells as a way to bring lack upon my life: be destroyed, in Jesus name.
